Best Tiki Bars in America.

“The Motor City’s only tiki bar, Mutiny Bar serves serious island vibes and a heavy dose of rum. The spot is a bring-your-own-food joint, which you’ll want in order to better soak up classics like the Painkiller made with rum, coconut, lime, orange and pineapple. Expect all the beloved tiki theatrics – kitschy mugs, flaming drinks and colorful twisty straws.”

“The kitschy tiki decor is just the tip of the volcano, as the exotic drinks (a la the Scorpion Bowl) at dive-bar prices and laid-back atmosphere set the perfect stage for frills-free karaoke with hostess Shantasy Island. Not only does she come with a stacked 28,000 song catalogue to choose from each Thursday night, but she’s got a set of killer pipes to drown even the most insufferable “Margaritaville” renditions.”
